They said they saw a white vehicle ditch the goods at Noor Street junction of Stanleyfield road, and then the culprit drove off.
The resident described the fridge freezer as an ‘eyesore’ and like a ‘land mark’ in the area.

Some drawers were also dumped at the same time.
Blog Preston approached the council for comment, and Councillor Robert Boswell, cabinet member for environment at Preston City Council, said: “Littering and fly-tipping is unpleasant for local residents that causes a blight on our streets, attracts vermin and can be harmful to wildlife.
“It also takes up a great amount of time and resource for the Council, which could be better spent elsewhere.
“We ask that everyone disposes of their waste in a responsible manner, for instance using our bulky waste collection service, in order to keeps the streets of Preston free of debris such as this.
“It is important that people report any fly-tipping incidents via our website immediately, giving the team all the details they can including specific locations, so they can be actioned appropriately as soon as possible.”
